Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and Flight Engineer Oleg Kotov continued to 
monitor the upload of new software into the Russian segment computers. 
Meanwhile Flight Engineer Clay Anderson helped them stow items no longer 
needed on the station in the ISS Progress 24 cargo craft. The Progress 
craft is scheduled to undock on Aug. 1.

Kotov and Anderson each completed mandatory computer-based Crew Medical 
Officer proficiency training. The training session is done once a month.

Late Friday, Anderson delayed his sleep period to handle a file-server 
crash. Flight controllers and Anderson worked hard for several hours to 
repair the Station Support Computer File Server. The server was reloaded 
with Expedition 15 software and all functions were restored with no 
impact to station operations.

Anderson also set up and activated the EarthKAM hardware for a new 
session. The camera is at the Lab science window and takes pictures by 
remote operation from the ground, without crew interaction. EarthKAM is 
an education program that enables thousands of students to photograph 
Earth from space. The student requests are uplinked to a laptop, which 
then activates the camera at specified times and receives the digital 
images from the camera for subsequent downlink.
